Lunch Meeting - Bill Mercer, Attorney, Holland & Hart LLP
Jon Krakauer’s Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town, which was released in April, has generated a significant amount of interest in important and related topics: the government’s response to sexual assaults, treatment of victims and the rights of victims in these cases and in general, and the state and federal law applicable to these subjects, including federal statutes specific to processes to be undertaken by colleges and universities if a victim or perpetrator of a sexual assault is an enrolled student.
Bill Mercer served in Montana as an Assistant U.S. Attorney and the Presidentially-appointed United States Attorney for fifteen years. The Office of the U.S. Attorney in Montana is responsible for the prosecution of violent crimes perpetrated on six of the seven Indian reservations in the state. As a result of his experience in the office, he will discuss the observations made by the author and public policy issues likely to arise with respect to the identified topics.
He encourages you to read the book in advance of the presentation.
